    Do not sail into the "need" for another submarine minefield, it is not about "need" my brothers! No less than the Constitution of these United States guarantees us the right to a Navy, see Article I, Section 8, Clause 13. Of course the definition of "us" may need some clarity...

      Hi Steve,

      The reference to the "Need" in my statement was actually my wife stating to me, do you really need another submarine? And that was after she came into my man cave, looked around at 18 + submarines and profoundly made that statement! But I as the humble servant that I am went down on bent knee and convinced her of that "need"! :-)) I then proceeded to Nautilus Drydocks and ordered the files for the "Arcturus"

      Actually guys, my wife is a big fan and a wonderful supporter of my hobby & I love her for it!

              I just printed off the stern of Arcturus and am in the process of printing the rest. Just too darned cool not to build up, at least as a completed hull.

              The stern is a bit of a challenge, as the outputs are rectangular and not super friendly to round propellers. I'll take a closer look and post up a video of some thoughts. I'm thinking this would be a great candidate for a high flow bilge pump for propulsion...

                  Hi Bob,

                  I am just about ready to start my Arcturus build, and in fact I am just getting ready to install a fresh new roll of white PLA for the build. I am looking forward to what you come up with as to a propulsion system for this boat.

                  And you are right! It is a cool looking submarine!
